Mathematics traditionally has been the bedrock of a liberal arts education. The root of the word mathematics comes from the Greek "mathema," which means to know. At heart, mathematicians are people who are interested in knowing and understanding the world and universe around them. The Department of Mathematics at Washington & Jefferson College is composed of a student-centered group of faculty who are dedicated to the intellectual and mathematical growth of our students. Small classes (upper-level courses often have fewer than ten students) allow for individualized attention. Generous office hours and open door policies permit students to interact with faculty on demand. Often, student/faculty interaction goes beyond the classroom. A mathematics lounge creates a space where students can get to know their professors in an informal setting while sharing lunch or a snack. Spend time with us, and we will provide you an education that stands the test of time. You will graduate with the intellectual tools necessary to compete in a dynamic and changing world. You will be challenged and you will be proud of your intellectual achievements.
